but wouldn't the goggles protect your eyes, preventing that possibility from happening?

I'd take contacts over prescription goggles any day. If they fogged, you'd be screwed. I normally wear glasses because I find them more comfortable, but I always wear my contacts for boarding. Oddly enough, they usually dry out when I wear them and cause me lots of irritation, but they have NEVER done that when I am boarding.

i took one spill on an icy hill and tumbled forward. contacts would've been semi-permanently affixed after that.

maybe that's because your eyes are enclosed by the goggles, effectively shielding them from the arid winds?

Hey, that's a thought. Never considered that. And I don't see how crashing in contacts would do anything. Unless you land on your eyeballs, you'll be fine.
